my robot necklace!
Originally uploaded by rubbernun
Jim and I made our first collaborative crafty project tonight. I wanted to make another shrinky-dink necklace (you can buy blank sheets of the stuff for cheap), and I asked him to draw a robot for me. He came up with this happy dude, which I traced, filled in with colored pencils, and cut out with nail scissors, using a hole punch to make space for the jump ring. The original drawing was about nine inches tall; the post-oven shrinky-dinked robot is about three, a good size for a necklace.

If you want to see it in action, come to the DIY Trunk Show on Saturday and say hi!

the nail scissors are another excellent idea.

They really help with the detail work.
